On Friday June 11, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue opened the Which Stage at Bonnaroo to a great response, echoed by a song from the show and new CD, Something Beautiful," getting 15,000 hits in the following 24 hours on YouTube. Flying to Los Angeles just hours after Bonnaroo, the band knocked out the crowd at the Playboy Jazz Festival at the prestigious Hollywood Bowl on Saturday June 12.

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
